Cowardly Liar David Frum Exploits Shooting To Urge People to Think About His Pet Subject That had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the Tragedy

Noted liar, ex-conservative, and pedophile-apologist David Frum on what we should be thinking about right now as six people lie dead:

Again: this talk did not cause this crime. But this crime should summon us to some reflection on this talk. Better: This crime should summon us to a quiet collective resolution to cease this kind of talk and to cease to indulge those who engage in it.

How about this crime should summon us to some reflection on whether the Rolling Stones were better than the Beatles. Or how about whether it’s better to eat one’s eggs scrambled or over easy?

Or how about I just shut my mouth and stop making offensive, meaningless statements which trivialize a tragedy and reveal yet again the great vacuum that sits in place of my moral compass?

Or if we’re getting so concerned all of a sudden about political speech that inspires violence then why don’t we turn for a moment to our college campuses where students in the Muslim Students Association openly declare their support for the extermination of the Jews?

And why don’t we ponder for a moment those campus activists who brazenly present their intentions for the obliteration of the Jewish state?

Oh life is so much more manageable when the most serious political issue of the day — the most dangerous threat to the continued existence of freedom — is the “aggressive” rhetoric of Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, the Tea Party, and we “extremist” blogger New Left character assassin cyber bullies. Meanwhile, regardless of one side’s political delusions, our government sinks deeper and deeper into the quicksand of debt and our Islamist opponents continue their quiet colonization throughout the West and our cultural institutions.

What blind, spoiled children we’ve become that we can sit and fiddle about “harsh rhetoric” in TV chat shows while Western Civilization is burning slowly all around us. Just how much smoke is going to have to envelope us before we wake from this stupor? Will it be too late by then?

Oh but there’s no smoke, that’s just the Islamophobia of the Bigoted Right, isn’t it, Mr. Frum? I mean the plight of Jews around the world to resist the genocidal efforts against them is in no way a concern approaching the seriousness of talk radio hosts using war metaphors to describe political contests. Am I doing it right, Mr. Frum? The whole “No Labels” thing where we just bite our tongues and don’t tell the truth about what’s happening to the world’s free societies today?

So sorry David, but no, we will not turn the volume down. If the music is too loud for you then you can just leave the party.

Yes, Melanie Phillips is quite right, this is indeed a world turned upside down:
